Challenge

The Penrith Lakes project was initially a quarry site regulated under the Mining Act.

This project required proofing earthworks under Mining Site Protocols adjacent to the banks of the Nepean River. Due to the size of the entire project there were significant other operations going on at the same time, this required co-ordination and planning of plant haulage, in particular fill importation.
